Texas father, not a boy, was driving a truck that hit a van carrying University of the Southwest golf team and coaches, NTSB says

DALLAS, Texas — A Texas man, not his 13-year-old son, was driving the pickup that pulled into the oncoming lane and rammed a van carrying New Mexico college golfers, killing nine people, and he had methamphetamine in his system, they said investigators on Thursday.

The National Transportation Safety Board said two days after the March 15 collision that its preliminary findings indicated that the 13-year-old was driving the pickup truck that rammed the van, the University of the Southwest student and coach of one golf tournament transported back to New Mexico. But the NTSB said Thursday that DNA testing confirmed the father, 38-year-old Henrich Siemens, drove and that toxicology tests showed the presence of methanephetamine in Siemens’ blood.

Siemens and his son died in the crash along with six members of the men’s and women’s golf teams and their coach.

The collision occurred in Andrews County, about 50 kilometers east of the Texas-New Mexico border. Although this is a rural area, the roads there can often be busy with traffic related to agriculture and oil and gas exploration.
